In the ongoing fight for life in Georgia, lawmakers have asked a federal judge to maintain the state’s abortion ban, set to take effect on Jan. 1, arguing that abortion is not healthcare, the Associated Press reports.
“it is well-settled that ‘a fetus is a living organism within the womb, whether or not it is viable outside the womb,” Republican Attorney General Chris Carr argued in his motion. “Accordingly, a State may properly recognize that an unborn child is alive even before ‘viability’ and—consistent with its power to protect unborn life—may prohibit the killing of that child by restricting certain types of pre-viability abortions.”
The ban restricts abortions after a heartbeat is detected, which is usually around six weeks of pregnancy. It was signed into law by Governor Brian Kemp earlier this year and has since faced several lawsuits from organizations such as Planned Parenthood and the ACLU.
Abortion activists believe the law is in direct conflict to Roe v. Wade and women have the constitutional right to an abortion.
“[The lawsuit] ensures that everyone has the freedom to make their own health care decisions without politicians looking over their shoulder and the freedom to decide for themselves when to start or expand a family,” Sean Young, ACLU of Georgia’s legal director said.
But state lawyers rebutted the lawsuit, claiming that…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
